"A cosseting seaside retreat"- The Guardian newspaper

Helen and Anne (and our whippets Frieda, Marcie and Lily) welcome you to our Bed and Breakfast in St Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire, West Wales. Near to Poppit Sands Beach, Cardigan Bay and Cardigan Castle, Oriel Milgi is a place where you can retreat in comfort after a day exploring everything this beautiful area has to offer. This surprisingly large house is full of character, with its concentric Georgian staircase linking the low-ceilinged slate-floored Cottage-style ground floor with the Georgian-added high-ceilinged bedrooms on the first floor. Staying in the house offers you the opportunity to enjoy the eclectic mix of mid-century and contemporary furnishings and our carefully curated private collection of Welsh and International paintings and ceramics. We offer a relaxed, informal welcome, coupled with high standards and attention to detail.



We are very proud to be named in the Top 10 Guardian Hotels and B&Bs in Pembrokeshire; the Guardian Top 5 Places to Stay in Wales for Walkers; the Telegraph Beach Holiday Guide and Conde Nast Traveller.

We believe it’s the details that make your stay special. With this in mind our 3 bedrooms have 100% pure French linen, beautifully soft and naturally hypoallergenic and the beds are dressed with traditional, antique Welsh wool blankets. All rooms feature contemporary wooden shutters and bespoke, rustic Welsh ash headboards.




We are very proud of our popular award-winning breakfast. All breakfasts are freshly-prepared using wonderful local ingredients – this means it may take 15-20 minutes, but we think it’s well worth the wait.

Try our delicious Oriel Milgi yoghurt pots – creamy Welsh yoghurt with Foxhill Farm jam made in the village topped with crunchy granola or porridge oats ground in the village's medieval water mill - Y Felin.

We provide pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and specials are often on the menu: locally-caught cold smoked salmon or sewin (sea trout); or when in season in Spring and Autumn locally-caught scallops.

Breakfast is served between 8am & 9am, around one large communal table in the open-plan dining/lounge room.

St Dogmaels (“Llandudoch” in Welsh) is a village in North Pembrokeshire, Wales. The village is situated on the tidal Teifi Estuary and contains the remains of a 12th Century abbey with adjacent museum/gallery, tea room and shop next to the duck pond of Y Felin, one of the few working medieval water mills in Wales.

Shakespeare plays are performed annually in the Abbey ground in August by the Abbey Shakespeare Players, a company containing local actors and professionals.

St Dogmaels is a working village, with a local fishing and farming community. There are two pubs, a Post Office, Bowen’s Fish and Chip shop, small local petrol station and garage and a local shop.

The village is spread around the hillside of the Teifi valley and there are a number of short walks around the village that take in lovely views over the Abbey and river, through woodland and along the river to the Pinog where you can watch the bird life and (if you’re very lucky) you may catch sight of the local otter family.

It is a 20 minute walk into Cardigan and 40 minute walk to Poppit Sands beach it is the perfect spot to break your journey when exploring
